February is Black History Month: If you’re ever looking to take a trail through a @NationalParkService site, then Boston African American National Historic Site (@boafnps) is the perfect place to visit. The African American community during the 19th century in Boston led the city and the nation in the fight against slavery. Men, women, and their allies became leaders for the Underground Railroad, Abolition Movement, and the Civil War. The Black Heritage Trail offers insight on an important and exciting part of Boston history that is often unknown and overlooked. The trail explores the important people and places from the Revolutionary War to the Civil War, and it’s a great way to learn about leadership, diversity, and courage.
